Project Description

To support the delivery of METRONET, a further $227.1 million will be allocated towards additional METRONET Stage 1 projects.

METRONET is an ambitious, integrated project for public transport and urban development that aligns strongly with the Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan. It is the cornerstone of the Perth City Deal, a long-term partnership between Australian, state and local governments that will align planning, investment and reforms to manage growth and secure Perth’s future prosperity and liveability.


Integrated and effective public transport:

  • ensure forecast population-driven increases in travel demand are met

Change travel behaviours and decrease private vehicle use:

  • improving transport network resilience by providing alternative options

Improve housing diversity:

  • support growth of vibrant urban centres through integrated transport and land use planning

Jobs and business opportunities:

  • provide jobs during project delivery and encourage long term opportunities for new businesses to grow


The Australian Government has committed $227.1 million towards these projects.


Future METRONET projects will be announced at a later date.
